Boo! As it's the season for surprises and jump scares, we decided to appear from nowhere to talk about seasonally-appropriate Trek episodes. This is part one of two because we ended up choosing lots of episodes (and yet still not covering them all) so watch your feed for the rest of the discussion. Spoilers for: Catspaw (TOS); Genesis, Frame of Mind, Schisms, Night Terrors and Sub Rosa (TNG); and The Assignment (DS9)   If you would prefer 3+ hour long podcasts in future, you can reach us through the interweb tubes (no half-spider Barclays involved! ... web? geddit? It's funny.) -----...

Content warning: near the end of the show, when we are discussing our favourite and not-so-favourite things/characters in Discovery, Fiona makes reference to PTSD and sexualised violence. Please keep this in mind if these are difficult topics for you. ----- Is that your threat ganglia showing or are you just surprised to see us in your podcast subscriptions feed? We are back, from outer space. You opened up your podcast app, with a sad look upon your face. You love our stupid show, our wit and humour are the key, and without any warning, we're back to bother thee... In this episode we talk...

Our What We Left Behind backer pins arrived, listen to us duke it out as only we can to decide who gets who! Also there's some discussion of Discovery (dunno if you'll have heard of it, there's not been much publicity or anything.)

Lookie loo, guess who?   Yes, we're back. Winter's pretty much a write-off for us, so consider this a new season of Angel Two? Due to technical problems and possibly the worst bad mental health period I've had since the last one the time I went to hospital, this is fully a month after we recorded. And the editing is minimal. Sorry that I couldn't do a better job, but there's Women At Warp if you want something more professional sounding!  I also have no idea what's in this episode, so tweet me or if there's anything you think I've missed.

Thanks for sticking with us, folks! A couple of months ago, Adam Nimoy's documentary  was released and as Sophie had contributed to the Kickstarter, she graciously waited until we were all together before watching it. Patience of a saint, that woman. We discuss said film and our thoughts on it and then, as we do, meander off topic a bit. AB and Fiona even disagree on something! Phasers (set to stun, we don't hate each other that much) at dawn! To watch For the Love of Spock yourself, going to will get you started. #LLAP

SPOILERS for Star Trek Beyond contained herein! Don't say we didn't warn you!   MJ, Sophie and Fiona took a trip to see Star Trek Beyond in the cinema and were quite surprised. When AB finally sees it, she may well kick herself, but not hard because it's still not ST:VI. Better than ST:V and Into Drekness, to damn it with faint praise. Does anyone even read the show notes? If you do, gonnae tweet me with the Vulcan salute emoji ? Or post it on ? Ta muchly. I'll away and see if I can find some pilfered Scotch now, invented by a little old lady in Russia...

Over a Google Hangout, AB, Sophie and Fiona talk a bunch of Trek news. Okay, it was news at the time, but true to form I'm glacial in my editing speed and then technology intervened and ate the edited episode then refused to upload it... Anyway. It's here! Because of the Hangout, the audio quality isn't great. Sophie is oddly quiet. And I left my window open. Again. It's gonzo podcasting, 'kay? It's a stylistic choice. Honest.   We cover the initial tease for Star Trek Discovery; Agents of Yesterday in Star Trek Online; MAC x Star Trek cosmetics and quite a few more things that I've...

Yes, I'm aware that revenge is a dish best served cold, so will be wary of any ice cream-based treats Sophie offers me.   MJ watched more DS9 with us (Sophie and Fiona this time; AB was unable to join us - she said something about a cellular peptide cake, with mint frosting?) Past Tense Pt. 2 (we ended up watching part one the previous week after recording) and In the Pale Moonlight, with TNG's Half a Life in between. As ever, it's taken a while to get this episode out to your ears (apologies!) so when we mention Anton Yelchin it was at least a month before his untimely passing. Please...

<Insert heartfelt apology for being so quiet for so long>   In this episode, we introduce MJ as both a new member of the Angel Two crew and to Star Trek - yes, we found someone we know and like who hasn't seen Star Trek and are taking steps to fix that terrible situation. Don't worry, she's completely down with it! Also: MJ's mum - sorry about the swearing. MJ's introduction begins with , and .   If you want to get in touch, say to ask us to record more often, you can do so via twitter: facebook: email us at angeltwopodcast@gmail.com And MJ's brilliant comic strip can be...
